Laser Palm Ratchet, From £15 (1/4in Drive)

Fast Car - - Fresh Kit -

Now the term ‘palm ratchet’ may sound like an eu­phemism for a good old-fash­ioned hand-shandy. But the truth is they’re a nifty lit­tle de­vice used for gain­ing ac­cess to your nuts where there’s not enough room to swing a much larger tool. And no, that’s not a eu­phemism ei­ther!

This well-priced, pro­fes­sional item from Laser Tools is par­tic­u­larly spe­cial be­cause it’s the first we’ve seen to in­cor­po­rate a small ex­ten­sion bar mounted on a universal joint with a spe­cial ‘wob­ble’ drive. This means it’ll still get a firm grip on your im­por­tant bits even when straight-line ac­cess is dif­fi­cult. We think ev­ery tool­box should have one, so we’ll all be sort­ing out a cheap, ahem, palm ratchet as soon as we get home and on­line. No change there then. www.laser­
